Corbin and Jacque in Savage, MD

Prepare yourself to melt into the eyes of this adorable pair, Corbin and Jacque. Corbin and Jacque are handsome tricolor boys that were surrendered to Cavalier Rescue USA without a lot of background information. We think it is likely that they were previously used for breeding.

We were told, and the vet estimates, that Corbin is around 10 years old and Jacque is around 7. While they aren’t littermates, they do share many of the same characteristics and definitely look to each other for comfort and friendship. 

These two little love sponges like to spend their time snuggled up in a bed, a couch, or at your feet waiting for pets and scratches. Despite being older, Corbin is the spunkier of the two and has an adorable mischievous side that he’s learning to embrace. Jacque is more mellow and reserved, but is much more wanting of affection and attention. They both are learning basic commands and leash walking, as this was foreign to them. They do have a tendency to try and sneak out of doors, so a family dedicated to safety is of utmost importance. Both of them love to meet new people and dogs and are still figuring out their place in the world! They are curious, loving, and are so happy to have space, a home, and the feeling of safety and comfort.

Both Corbin and Jacque had a significant amount of teeth removed due to poor dental hygiene, however, this has not affected their ability to eat. Corbin has mild degenerative valve disease and mild pulmonary hypertension which requires daily heart medication, Vetmedin, and yearly cardiology visits along with regular checkups at the vet. He is also hard of hearing, but has shown improvement with responding to high pitch noises and claps and stomps. They both were just recently neutered while in foster care, so continued work on house training will be needed. 

Currently Corbin and Jacque live with a dog foster brother and they often look to him for guidance and general interaction. Because they were not well socialized previously, and are just figuring out how to live their best lives, we are recommending a house with another mild-mannered dog, but where they would also get all of the love and attention they deserve. 

They are crate trained and are in there when left alone for an extended period as well as sleeping overnight. Corbin and Jacque are truly the sweetest, most loving and adorable dogs you will ever meet – they are sure to bring joy to your family!

Marigold in Mechanicsburg, PA

Update 9-20-22: We have received several good applications for this pup so aren’t taking more for now. Thank you!
 
This petite, 11-pound Blenheim girl came to Rescue with nothing – not even a name. It didn’t take long to see behind this scared, submissive puppy mill girl was a bright shining soul just waiting to come out. So, she earned the name Marigold.
 
 
Marigold has thrived since coming into her foster home. She had to learn many things such as stairs, walking on grass, appreciating love from people, good food and a soft, warm bed. It didn’t take long for her to pick all this up. She especially enjoys meal times. Her adopter will probably never have to clean their kitchen floor again! Housebreaking was easy and she is reliable about going outside. It has helped to have her pack of foster sisters showing her the way. She has especially enjoyed playing with the resident nine month old puppy.
 
Marigold has mastered walking on a leash and loves rides in the car. She is a quiet girl and doesn’t bark much. She just sits, watches and quietly enjoys everything. She is crated when left alone. She barks for a few minutes, then quiets down. She also sleeps in her crate at all night without a peep. She occasionally startles with sudden movements. Her self confidence has grown by leaps and bounds, but still has a way to go.
 
 
A visit to the vets showed her general health is excellent. Her age is estimated to be around 5 years old. She was spayed and a dental done. None of her teeth had to be removed, but were just cleaned up. They did find a small cyst beside one of her mammary glands. It has not changed in size or shape and the vet did not think it was anything but a fat cyst. It is something that should be checked with her normal vet visits. Itchy ears are her main issue and even that is not often. They appear to be related to food allergies. The main culprits seem to be chicken and grain. She is on a high quality, grain free kibble and limited ingredient treats. If her ears do get itchy, she has prescription ear drops that are used twice a day. This has only been used a couple times in the past several months.
 
A quiet home with someone around most of the day would be best for Marigold. She would also benefit from the companionship of another quiet, submissive dog. She doesn’t mind kids and has not been cat tested. She has a tendency to get overwhelmed when surrounded by active hyper dogs, so a dog park is not the best place for Marigold. However, she is quite polite on walks and quietly greets dogs with a sniff, then she’s on her way.
 
 
She has really enjoyed the fenced in yard and loves nibbling on flowers and figuring out why her foster sisters are tearing around the yard (they’re chasing butterflies). The most important thing for Marigold is lots of love from her family. She is just a little sponge soaking it all up. She adores her people and is either sitting at your feet, gazing up at you or plastered on your side on the couch in the evening. Marigold is a sweet, sweet girl looking for love and a place to call home.
 
If you think your family would be a good fit for Marigold and you loved within a reasonable driving distance of Mechanicsburg, PA please contact Melissa MacMullin via email cavalierrescueusapa@gmail.com to let her know if your interest. Please make sure you have a current applicant on file.

Holly in Lewisburg, PA

Here is Holly with her new family…

Holly isn’t…..

Holly isn’t overly exuberant, loud, fussy, or particularly difficult in any way.

She isn’t excessively messy and is never destructive.

Holly will never scare off your Amazon delivery driver with her excessive barking.

She isn’t going to put up a fight if you wanted to dress her up or put her in a stroller for a walk.

Holly won’t jump on your guests, or pull you enthusiastically down the street.

She isn’t going to need a bunch of toys or chews to keep her satisfied and out of trouble.

Holly is never going to have high demands for exercise or activity.

She won’t demand anything much…

…because she never knew much in her first 4 years of life. Probably not so much as a kind word or a pat on the head. While she won’t be overly demanding of those, she’ll take them hungrily, like a love-starved Cavalier often will.

Holly has a pretty significant heart murmur with mitral valve prolapse and is on medication and supplements, which she easily takes in her food bowl daily or dipped in peanut butter. She’s been spayed, and has had a dental, and she’s in otherwise good shape physically. Holly is showing no symptoms of congestive heart failure at this time, but please understand that with a grade 5 out of 6 murmur, she will require medication and regular cardiac care throughout her life.

During her past 4 months in foster care, this beautiful Blenheim girl has recovered from much from the trauma that was her life in a breeding facility. She’s learned the dog door and how to “hold it” all night or until she’s put out. (If you ask Holly if she needs to go out – she’ll let you know). She’s found her way from the safety of the sunporch (with the easy-escape dog door) all the way to the bedroom and has twice snuck up on the bed to snuggle in quietly behind her female foster’s back in the early morning after the “man of the house” has left. She has learned to come to her name when called, and to walk politely on a leash. Loud noises can still spook her a little bit.

Holly has learned to trust humans, perhaps women a tad bit more than men, but she very much enjoys the company of quiet, calm, gentle men just fine. She wouldn’t mind some quiet, calm, older children too. Pretty much anyone who wants to give her some love. Holly will sit still endlessly for petting and affection.

She doesn’t mind other dogs or cats as long as they aren’t too overwhelming. She doesn’t get easily excited about much, and doesn’t give too much of her time to those that do, and she never minds a fellow snuggler cuddling up with her. The vet’s office staff adored her during her visits; she couldn’t have been a nicer patient. Everyone who has met Holly adores her gentle personality. Car rides with Holly have been easy and calm.

This is an exceptionally lovely girl with very few vices and too many fantastic qualities to mention!! She’s not a big girl – weighing in at about 18 lbs., but like most cavaliers – she loves meal time. Overfeeding Holly would be easy to do – so her adopters must be able and willing to keep her fit for the sake of her heart health.

It doesn’t seem fair that this young, pretty, gentle, affectionate, loving girl will have a shortened lifespan, but hopefully with continue medication and proper care, someone will get the pleasure of her company for a while to come. And it will be a pleasure to be in her company – she’s an easy girl to love.

Since Holly is used to be around other dogs, we are looking for a home with another calm dog for companionship.

If you’d like to give Holly the home that she deserves for the rest of her life, please make sure you have a current application on file and contact Melissa MacMullin (cavalierrescueusapa@gmail.com) to let her know that you are interested. Holly is currently located in foster care in Lewisburg, PA.

Romeo in Carlisle, PA

You will never have to ask, “Where for art thou, my Romeo,” because this cute boy will never be far from your side! Romeo is a 1 1/2 year old, Black and Tan Cavalier who was surrendered to rescue when a family member developed an allergy. He was well cared for, and exhibits no health or behavioral issues.

Romeo is at his ideal weight of 12 pounds. He loves toys, and sometimes will take every toy out of the box before deciding which toy to play with. In his foster home, Romeo plays nicely with his similar age Cavalier brother, so he probably would be happiest in a home with a canine playmate.

Romeo enjoys his daily walks and walks well on a leash. He does have some mild separation anxiety and does not like to be left alone. He often barks if you leave the room. He is getting better with this, especially when he realizes that you will be returning. Romeo is fine around other dogs and children. He has not been tested around cats.

Crate training is a work in progress for Romeo. Despite having treats and toys in his crate, Romeo has not warmed up to spending time in there. He sleeps in his own little bed next to the big bed, but sometimes.ends up in the big bed by morning. Romeo is fully house trained and is dependable through the night.

Romeo is very good at letting you know what he wants. He might tap you with his paw if he wants to be pet or jump into your lap if he wants to be held. He has a special little bark that lets you know if you’re not giving him enough attention!

Because he does not like being left along, Romeo’s ideal family would have someone who is home most of the time. Also, someone who would spend time playing with him and walking him every day would be ideal. One or more canine companions would be perfect.

If you are looking for a Cavalier who wants nothing more than to sit in your lap, play with you or snuggle by your side, then Romeo would be a perfect match.

If you live within a reasonable driving distance and you think your family would be a good match for Romeo, please complete our online application if you haven’t already and then contact Melissa MacMullin at cavalierrescueusapa@gmail.com  to let her know if your interest.
